Today, the "baby" turns two.  The BABY.  TWO!  Unbelievable. 
We sang to her first thing.  She was so excited.  "dirday" 
Happy Birthday to you, to Jesus be true, God bless you and keep you, the whole year through.

Since today was a work day, we had Mary open up her gifts first thing in the morning, before they headed off to work. 
Mary absolutely loves this tea set. 
A handmade birthday dress from big sister.

Yep, that's snow in the background...crazy spring!
Story books, coloring books & crayons, Play dough, Little People princesses, a cuddly plush lamb, and tea party set.  All great fun for Birthday Girl.  That's how she spent her day.

Pretty sweet big brother to play tea party with her.  The both had a lot of fun together.
For her special birthday dinner I decided to make home made macaroni and cheese topped with bacon.  That was a hit! 

We did cupcakes with pink frosting and sprinkles and cookie dough ice cream.  Cupcakes are great because they are a nice serving size.  Mary didn't love the ice cream.  She's probably a plain vanilla her mama. ;-)

It was so cute, when we put the cupcake in front of her, she immediately started blowing on the UNlit candles to blow them out.  {Gee, she hasn't seen anybody blow out candles recently.}

Happy Birthday, Sweet Mary Anne.  You are such a joy and a delight.  We are so thankful to God for you.


  1. Hard to believe -- I still remember getting "the call" from Eric the day she was born...
    and I'm so excited that I will get to meet her very shortly!! She's such a cutie. Happy birthday Mary Anne. :-)

  2. How cute!!! I love how she started blowing out the candles before they were even lit. =D looks like she had a blast of a day!!


I always look forward to reading your comments. Thank you for taking the time to leave one. :-)
